About the role

We have an exciting opportunity in the Centre for Health, and Injury and Illness Prevention in Sport for someone with a passion for injury prevention who is looking to use their data skills to have an impact on rugby union policy and practice.

In the 18-month project, you will integrate data from a number of sources (e.g., head kinematics from mouth-guards with integrated sensors, game events from match analysis, concussion data from injury surveillance) to develop models to describe head impacts in rugby union players in the highest women’s and men’s leagues in England.

The project is supported by the Rugby Football Union in partnership with Premiership Rugby and Premiership Women’s Rugby. You will have opportunities to engage with policy-makers and end-users (e.g., coaches and players) to develop knowledge translation skills and to have real-world impact on how rugby union players train and play.

As a member of Research Staff at the University of Bath, you will be encouraged to take up a minimum of 10 days professional development pro rata per year.

This role is offered on a full time (36.5 hours per week) fixed term basis with an expected duration of 18-months. 

About you 

We are looking for someone with a PhD in Sports Science, Data Science or Computer Science with expertise in machine learning, data analytics, and signal processing.

It is not necessary to have detailed knowledge of rugby, but a general interest in, and knowledge of, sport will be helpful.
